I can imagine that most of you, fellow readers, by reading this title, have immediately thought “Oh that’s so cool, she has backpacked around Europe for 10 Days!” …Nope… actually I have never backpacked in my life, but I would really like to one day!
That’s why I have thought about this post series that I’ll publish once in a while where I’ll create an ideal itinerary that I’d like to do including cities I haven’t visit yet or places I’d like to go back to from the eyes of some of my favourite bloggers. I consider it a way to prepare myself to a possible tour but at the same time it could also inspire some of you to visit new cities or discover new bloggers! I pretty excited so I hope you’ll like the idea!
Before sharing my first itinerary with you I think it would be useful for most of you to read this article written by Ashlea from A Globe Well Travelled where she considers all the costs related to a tour like this in order to have a total cost, really useful and interesting!
So, here we go with MY FIRST IDEAL TOUR around Europe, so what is typically defined as an Interrail:
DAY 1 & 2 – Paris, France
I’d start from Paris, France. I’ve been there with my family when I was 10 so you can imagine how my memories about that city are…because of this, I definitely want to go back! I’d stay there at least two days, the first day I’d stay in Paris and visit the main attractions plus the amazing Organic Market that Angie from Livingoutsidethebox has described in this post, all the stuff they have there look so good!
While, the second day I’d like to explore some of the surroundings of the city and visit the Claude Monet Garden which Matea from The Fowing Minds has written about in this wonderful post.
DAY 3 – Zurich, Switzerland
From Paris I’d get a night train in order to be in Zurich by the morning of day 3. Despite Switzerland is very near Italy I’ve never been there but I’ve heard many good experiences about travelling to this country! Plus, after reading this post by Erika from Erika’s Travels I’m definitely motivated to go! I’m especially curious to visit the old town, from the picture below it seems lovely! I’d just stay here for 24h so that I’d be able to get another night train (yeah I know two night trains in a row it’s quite challenging!) in order to arrive to the next destination by the morning of day 4 😉
DAY 4, 5 & 6 – Prague, Czech Republic
Prague is another destination where most of the people I know have been and talked about it like if it was just the perfect place so well…I have to check that too!! 😀 Plus, after reading this post written by Lara from BlackBerry Season I don’t have excuses anymore!! 🙂 All the attractions listed on her post seem so nice but the one I’m very looking forward to see is the The State Opera House, in general, I love going to the theatre and that one seems really impressive! Also, since I would stay there a couple of days I would make sure to pass by the beautiful Charles Bridge at sunset just like Julie from Sweet Escapes did, the picture she shared in this post is just stunning!
DAY 7 & 8 – Berlin, Germany
I’ve already been to Berlin two years ago for a long weekend trip and when I left, despite we walked a lot every day to see the main attractions, I had the feeling I saw like the 20% of what there’s to see in Berlin! It’s such an interesting and inspiring city! So this time I would arrive in the morning of day 7 (leaving Prague really early in the morning) and spend there 1 day and a half which I’m sure is not enough to see everything I’m missing but at least I’d see something more! I would definitely take some of the advices that Jenny from ExploreAdventureDiscover wrote down in this post, I’ve already done some of the things mentioned so I’d focus on the ones I didn’t have the chance to see the previous time 😉
DAY 9 & 10 – Krakow, Poland
I would end my journey in Krakow because after reading this article by Ben from Driftwood Journals, I actually look forward to experience the same adventures he undertook such as riding like a king through the Cobbled Streets with a Guided Horse and Cart Ride…doesn’t it sound so cool and interesting?!
I hope you enjoyed this imaginary first tour around Europe, I’m planning to write other posts like this one so if you also have itinerary ideas don’t hesitate to share them, I’d be glad to have any kind of suggestion or advice! 🙂
